Akiva Goldsman calls STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS “optimistic & episodic”

Star Trek (CBS)

We’ve got some tantalising new pieces of information on the upcoming new Star Trek series, Strange New Worlds, from series co-creator Akiva Goldsman.

Goldsman sat down with Variety to discuss development on the series and touched on the format the series is set to take.

“We’re going to try to harken back to some classical ‘Trek’ values, to be optimistic, and to be more episodic.” said Goldsman. “Obviously, we will take advantage of the serialized nature of character and story building. But I think our plots will be more closed-ended than you’ve seen in either ‘Discovery’ or ‘Picard.’ I imagine it to be closer to the original series than even ‘DS9. We can really tell closed-ended stories. We can find ourselves in episodes that are tonally of a piece.”

Spock himself, Ethan Peck, also spoke with Variety and discussed that he has spent the better part of a year campaigning for the network to bring the series to the air.

It’ll be a whole new challenge for me as an actor portraying Spock because you’ve had this transformation. I can’t wait to see what we explore.

We still don’t know when the series will begin production or come to air but we’ll keep you updated.
